Directions: Passing the Advisory Board Torch

Besides his service in various automotive repair organizations, we wanted to thank Al Duebber for serving as an advisory board member for Underhood Service since the magazine was founded back in 1995.

Many of you reading this have probably bumped elbows with Al Duebber at one time or another.

In fact, in the automotive service and repair industry, it would almost be hard not to.

Duebber, as you may know, is the founder of Duebber’s Automotive, a nine-bay automotive repair shop that includes a full-service gas station and convenient store in Cincinnati, OH.

In the past 40 years, Duebber has been active in industry organizations. He’s served as vice chairman for the Automotive Service Association (ASA) and has served on the board of trustees for National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF).

He’s been ASE-certified as a service consultant (level C1) and an Accredited Automotive Manager through the Automotive Management Institute. And his shop, which won the 2004 CARQUEST Excellence Award, was one of the first service centers in the country to be recognized by ASE as a Blue Seal of Excellence facility.

Besides his service in various automotive repair organizations, Duebber also has served as an advisory board member for Underhood Service since the magazine was founded back in 1995.

Many of you know Duebber retired late last year, and handed the reins over to his son Marc. We’re proud to have Marc continue the Duebber ­tradition of serving on our advisory board that is used for advice on article ideas and trends in the industry, as well as assistance in completing ­surveys or questionnaires about the industry for our research needs.

And, look for profiles of our other helpful advisory board members in upcoming issues of this magazine. We take this opportunity to thank them for their service in providing content ideas that helps us generate a beneficial magazine to you, our readers.
